Reconstitution of the NHTL


The term of office of the National House of Traditional Leaders’ came to an end on the 21st May 2007. In terms of the National House of Traditional Leaders Act, 1997 as amended, a new House had to be reconstituted with the President of the Country presiding or delegating someone else to preside over the reconstitution. The Minister of Public Works, Ms Thoko Engela Didiza was delegated by the President to preside.. The Deputy Judge President Shongwe was delegated by the Judge President of the High Court to conduct the swearing in of the eighteen members and the Chairperson and the Deputy Chairperson. The current full time members of the NHTL were elected into positions. The third National House of Traditional Leaders was reconstituted on the 22nd of May 2007 in Pretoria. The following members were elected as Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson respectively: Khosi Fhumulani Peter Kutama and Kgosi Phopolo Pontsho Maubane.   


Operation of the NHTL


The National House of Traditional Leaders functions through its committees. A lot of money is spent on committee meetings on transport and accommodation for the members of the National House. The NHTL has tried to alleviate this problem by clustering members and making sure that all members are gainfully utilized while in Pretoria or where they are deployed. As a result,  during committee week only three days is utilized instead of five and that two committees may sit at the same time and therefore the seven committees can all sit in three days. To have a committee meeting in the National House of Traditional Leaders cost about R20 000.00 and to have a sitting cost about R60 000.00


The committees that are mentioned above does not include deployment of a member to attend a certain task or function on behalf of the NHTL. The ad hoc committees of the NHTL at the moment are two viz: Task team on the leadership question by the President which is composed of three members led by the deputy chairperson. The second task team dealing with the payments of grants is composed of five members.


Bearing in mind the amount that cost the NHTL to have a committee meeting plus the number of adhoc committees then vis a vis the amount given.


The committees that are being discussed are chaired as follows:

Management Committee                                                             Khosi FP Kutama

Internal Arrangement Committee                                                 Morena o Moholo Mota

Constitutional Development Committee                                        Inkosi WT Mavundla

Social Development Committee                                                   Hosi PC Ngove

Land and Agriculture Committee                                                  Inkosi Ngomane

Tradition, Custom and Culture Committee                                    gosi GG Shole

Gender, Youth, Children, Aged and People with Disability  Inkosikazi Mgwebi

Committee of Chairpersons                                                         Kgosi PP Maubane


 The following programs were undertaken by various committees:


Program of Committees


The program of the National House of Traditional Leaders has been drawn and it provides for two weeks for Provincial Business and two weeks for NHTL business. The first and third week of the month is for the NHTL and the second and fourth week is for the Provincial business. It is expected that provinces will utilize the week profitably to include business for the Local Houses and Traditional Councils. The Committees of the NHTL will on a monthly and quarterly basis submit a report that will detail their activities and plans. It is expected that the interaction between provinces and the NHTL should be structured as per the above program.


Policy Process on the system of Provincial and Local Government


The Department of Provincial and Local Government developed a policy process to evaluate and get the actual feelings and positions of various sectors regarding the Provincial and Local Government. The Director-General of the DPLG referred the policy review document to the NHTL for inputs and to submit not later than 31 October 2007.  The document was referred to the CDC for inputs as it relates to the policy review on Provincial and Local Government. The   document deals specifically with the manner in which Provincial Governments are managed and the reasons for their existence in terms of nation building and service delivery. The position of the National House of Traditional Leaders is that the Provincial Government must be managed much more effectively than they are now instead of being abolished. Same applies to the system of Local Government where more capacity must be deployed in order to make the different local government operate much better.


Rules and Orders of the NHTL


The new Rules and Orders of the NHTL have been adopted by the House in December 2007. Members of the House were also workshoped on the new Rules and Orders


Think Tank


The NHTL has established a “Think Tank”., which is composed of a body of experts from UNISA, which will assist the National House on constitutional, cultural matters, etc.






Children’s Act


The NHTL made comments on the Children’ Bill and forwarded them to Parliament, stating clearly the relevant sections in the Bill that the House is opposed to. The House further made verbal contributions on the Bill to the Portfolio Committee in Parliament.


Land owned by Foreigners


The Department of Land Affairs invited all traditional leaders of South Africa in Durban to consult them on the land owned by foreigners. This was the step by the Department when  considering developing the policy and they involved traditional leaders. Traditional Leaders made inputs in this regard.


Human Science Research Council Bill


The NHTL made inputs on the Bill. It ensured that rural communities were adequately represented. The inputs by the NHTL were considered and they were included in the Bill.


Traditional Courts Bill


The NHTL has actively participated in the development of the traditional courts Bill. The Department of Justice and Constitutional Development has involved the NHTL and traditional leaders on the development of the Bill.



Crime Prevention


The NHTL had a meeting with the Minister of Safety and Security and he mentioned that it is necessary to fight crime in rural communities. It was agreed that the Minister will organize a cluster meeting where the NHTL and other relevant stakeholders will participate in the crime prevention.



Safety and Security


The NHTL met with the Minister of Safety and Security and agreed that the NHTL will be invited to make presentations to the Criminal Justice Cluster on the role of traditional leadership in crime prevention. The Constitutional Development Committee has met the Provincial delegates and agreed on the composition of the paper on the role of traditional leaders in Crime Prevention.



Presidential Question


During the Opening of the NHTL (Annual Address by the President to the Traditional Leaders of South Africa) in 2007, the President asked the question “What is the community expecting of their leaders”. The NHTL has established a three persons Committee to work on the question. Furthermore, the subcommittee of Deputy Chairpersons has been requested to seek an answer to the question. The NHTL has decided that Provincial Houses of Traditional Leaders should also be consulted in answering the question raised by the President and thereafter the “ Think tank” that has been referred to above will also assist the NHTL  in answering the question.


Forums of the NHTL


The NHTL and the Provincial Houses of Traditional Leaders have been established by their own legislation. The National House of Traditional Leaders Act and the Acts establishing Provincial Houses of Traditional Leaders does not authorize the NHTL to exercise any powers over Provincial Houses nor does it indicate the reporting system between the NHTL and Provincial Houses. As such the NHTL has established a Forum of Internal Arrangement Committees to look at the welfare of all traditional leaders in the country including remuneration and benefits. This arrangement will I make it much easier for the NHTL to consult Provinces through the Internal Arrangement Forum.


Co-operation with the Houses (PHTL’s and LHTl’s)


The NHTL has decided to report on the status of traditional leaders in the country. The ability to report on the status of the Institution of traditional leadership will depend on Provinces submitting reports to the NHTL. The leaders of delegations to the NHTL will be required to table their Provincial quarterly reports to the NHTL in order for the NHTL to produce a full quarterly and annual report that is reflective of all the Houses of Traditional Leaders.



Inputs to the Commission on Remuneration of Public Office Bearers (Moseneke Commission)


The National House of Traditional Leaders together with all the Provincial Houses developed a document regarding the remuneration of Traditional Leaders. The inputs or document to the commission was largely based on the figures received in July from the Eastern Cape Provincial House of Traditional Leaders. The Houses further determined the tools of trade for all the categories of Traditional Leadership and for the different positions of the Houses of Traditional Leaders. The submission is attached.


Stakeholder Partnerships


The NHTL has decided to partner with organizations like PANSALB and Moral Regeneration Movement regarding the following:


Moral Regeneration Matters


The Moral Regeneration Movement share programs with the NHTL in terms of regeneration the morals of the people. The MRM and NHTL are in a stage of negotiating an agreement that will concretize their operations and will streamline the operations of the two organizations. The critical program that the two organizations have started to plan together is the prevention of the spread of HIV and AIDS through  the improvement of the behavior of  communities under traditional leadership.




 PANSALB and NHTL share the core function of promoting languages especially the indigenous languages of South Africa. The NHTL share a very important program with PANSALB which is the language improvement and development. The NHTL is of the opinion that language is a key aspect of culture and only through it , culture can be protected.


Presidential National Commission on Communication Technology and Information (PNC-ISAD)


The National House negotiated with the Department of Communications to be included in the Cabinet Cluster and the IGR Forum on ICT. The Cluster is composed of all the Chairpersons of the Houses of Traditional Leaders and is expected to provide the needs of ICT in the rural areas. The PNC will report to the President on proper and accurate information on ICT per province and the institution of traditional leadership. The Department of Communications will create the web sites for all the Houses and manage the websites.







The National House of Traditional Leaders is representing the Institution of Traditional Leadership in the SANAC. It is represented by three members of NHTL,that is Khosi Kutama who is the leader of the delegation, Hosi Ngove and Inkosikazi Mhlauli. They sit in the highest decision making body of SANAC. The NHTL will develop a plan on the fight against the spread of HIV and AIDS and the plan will be submitted to SANAC. The plan further requires some skills development to be undertaken on continuous basis in order to keep up with the latest scientific discovery on HIV and AIDS. The plan will be implemented by the Social Development Forum.



NHTL and the Health Policy Initiative (HPI)


The Social Development Committee of NHTL together with the Social Development Forum arranged training and consultation between individual provinces on HIV and AIDS related matters in consultation with HPI. Training was conducted by HPI in all Provincial Houses and the NHTL  It was agreed that a Memorandum of Understanding will be negotiated between the NHTL and HPI. The NHTL is presently in a process of negotiating the MoU which will lead to the Development of and HIV and AIDS Plan for the Traditional Leaders.


Commission on Remuneration


The National House of Traditional Leaders together with all Houses adopted a report by the Eastern Cape House of Traditional Leaders and presented it to the commission on the 13th July 2007. The NHTL together with Provincial Houses are engaging the consultant appointed by the Commission for the determination of the actual tools of trade for the Institution of Traditional Leaders.





Poverty Alleviation


The NHTL is participating in the poverty alleviation programs through the Gender Committee of the House, which was established after the reconstitution of the House in May 2007.The committee will work together with the Department of Social Development in ensuring that women play a role in the community building and poverty alleviation.



Continental House of Traditional Leaders


The Chairpersons of Houses of Traditional Leaders in theADC region concluded the establishment protocol of this House. There are still countries which have not yet signed the establishment protocol, that is Swaziland, Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo and Malawi. The above mentioned countries will still be pursued and if they agree to sign, the SADC-KHOTLA will be launched.





Preservation of culture, indigenous knowledge, languages etc


The NHTL together with the Deputy President has conducted public outreach where one of the key aspect was to promote the usage of indigenous languages. Furthermore, the NHTL is in negotiation with the PANSLB to cooperate on promotion and preservation of indigenous languages. The NHTL has further engaged with the South African National Heritage Agency to structure a working relationship which will see a number of our traditional heritage sites being declared provincial or national heritage sites.









Skills Development Program

The working relationship with LGSETA is starting to bear fruits as the first two training manuals were launched. The training as prioritized by traditional leaders themselves includes the first two training programs as Community Development and Local Economic Development. The two training programs will be conducted by LGSETA in 2008. The LGSETA has agreed with Provincial Government on depositing an amount that will be used to build capacity to the traditional leaders in those provinces. Only accredited service providers will be used to capacitate traditional leaders.


NPA Training on Domestic Violence

The NHTL through its second phase training provided by NPA has managed to train traditional leaders to be facilitators. The traditional leaders who has been trained on level 2, facilitate learning using a variety of methodologies, will be able to conduct training or facilitate training to those traditional leaders who were not trained.


Justice College

The Justice College which at some time trained traditional leaders on Human Rights etc,  will still provide additional training to traditional leaders in North West and Mpumalanga.


Staff Development

The Staff members of the NHTL have undergone a number of training sessions offered by the DPLG on minutes and reports writing, Project Management etc. Fully capacitated staff members will be better positioned to assist the Institution of Traditional Leaders especially the NHTL in taking its mandate forward.


Furthermore, some staff members (committee section and sergeant at arms) were seconded to the Mpumalanga Legislature with the intention of understanding the operation of the legislature committees.





Outreach Programs


Social Development Month in Venda (Vhembe District in Mutale Municipality)


The aim of the program was to avail government to the deep rural traditional communities and that government services are brought closer to the people.. The key issues that necessitated the program are the following:


·         Culture as a source of employment through cultural tourism


In almost all the engagements with the Deputy President, she has indicated that Traditional Leaders are the custodians of culture. Being the custodian of culture they have to be seen as promoting the culture and ensuring that it is marketed throughout the country and abroad. Critical in this regard is the revival of cultural life and marrying it with the Present technological challenges of our rural people. The promotion and encouragement of cultures that promote humanity and sound behavior is critical to the revival of Africa. This culture includes rebuilding of family structures to end orphanages.


·         Consider the services rendered by Government on Social services (SASSA)


The Department of Social Development through SASSA is providing various grants that will improve the lives of the poorest of the poor in South Africa. In order to access them one must meet the relevant criteria and not abuse such grants. The life within cultural prescripts will ensure that South Africa becomes a better country with less teens falling pregnant because culture shall be deciding on the kind of life one must lead.





·         Self development skills (Local Economic Development)


People will be encouraged to establish social clubs that will improve their lives. This will help people to share experiences and organize capacity building programs. It will further ensure that people do not engage in alcohol or any other intoxicating substances that will destroy their lives.  The social clubs will ensure that people start to think as a community and help each other in a form of ilima/letsima. Their cooperation and working together will ensure that the local economy grows and that people realize that poverty only needs people to fight it direct through using what they have.


·         Scourge of HIV and AIDS and other sexually transmitted Infections

The Government of South Africa has established a strong body that complements the work done by the Department of Health and Social Development. This structure is called SANAC and traditional Leaders are sitting or are members of the said structure. The plan of traditional Leaders includes amongst others encouraging abstinence from sexual activities until a person has reached a stage where he or she can marry. This is in line with the culture of Africans of not engaging in Sexual Activities before marriage.


·         Education (focusing more on mathematics and Science)

Traditional Leaders are aware that Education is the only mechanism to compete in the Global village. Therefore, youth must be encouraged to take subjects such as Mathematics and Science in order to improve and close the gap of lack of

engineers etc in South Africa.



Qwaqwa Outreach Program


Traditional Launch of the sixteen days of Activism against abuse of Women and Children.


This program’s intention is to promote the role of traditional leaders in condemning violence against women and children. In the process the program addressed a number of aspects such as language, morality, government programs etc.
